Roaming Guide

Before Leaving Singapore

Follow the tips in this checklist before your trip to enjoy hassle-free roaming while overseas:

  2. Make sure data roaming is switched off if you do not want to use data roaming on your smartphone while overseas. You can find handset-specific instructions for doing this in the Data Roaming Tips section.
  3. To save significantly on your data roaming bills, consider subscribing to DataRoam Saver plans or BlackBerry DataRoam.To know how much data you may use while overseas, click here for a reference.
